Doctor’s Best Vegan D3 features Vitashine D3, a plant source of Vitamin D3 (as cholecalciferol), needed for the body to regulate phosphorus and calcium levels for healthy bones, teeth and heart protection. Vitamin D3 is produced in the skin by absorbing the sun’s UV rays and is obtained from food in limited amounts. Sun protection and climate factors may influence low Vitamin D3 levels. Vitamin D3 is beneficial for immune, cardiovascular, bone density and structure, and cellular function. It plays a role in most organs and systems of the body and influences the chemical messengers of the immune system.
D vitamins are fat soluble, which means that they are stored within the liver and other fatty tissues when they aren’t used and are secreted when the body needs them. These vitamins play a crucial role in your overall health and well being. The recommended daily intake of vitamin D is between 600 and 4,000 IU. In order to maintain your health, it’s important that you get enough of this vitamin.
- It strengthens bones and teeth. Since vitamin D3 helps with the regulation and absorption of calcium, it plays an important role in the health of your teeth and bones.
- Strengthens the immune system: Vitamin D3 also plays an important role in maintaining and strengthening the immune system. This fat soluble vitamin helps to turn certain genes and processes that occur within the body on and off. Vitamin D is stored in fatty tissues, such as the liver, and is excreted when it is needed. It is sent out to many different parts of the body, including the cells in the immune system.
- It Boost your mood: If you are feeling a blue, especially during the winter months when exposure to the sun naturally decreases, it could be because you are suffering from a vitamin D deficiency. Several studies have revealed that the symptoms of Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) may be linked to low levels of vitamin D3. SAD is a mood disorder and the primary symptom is depression. Studies suggest that the decreased levels of vitamin D3 may impact the levels of serotonin in the brain, a hormone that regulates the mood. By taking a vitamin D3 supplement or increasing your exposure to the sun, you could see a significant boost in your mood.
- Helps lower blood pressure: There have been several observational studies that have proven that there is an undisputable link between low vitamin D levels and hypertension (high blood pressure). Until recently, it wasn’t known if being deficient in vitamin D actually lead to hypertension. A large genetic study that involved more than 150,000 people revealed that low levels of vitamin D can, in fact, cause hypertension.
- May prevent certain types of cancer: Vitamin D3 can help to prevent the development of certain types of cancer. Epidemiologic research has shown that there is a lower incidence of certain types of cancers are lower in people who live in southern locations and have more exposure to the sun. That’s because the UV rays of the sun naturally produce vitamin D in the body, which has lead researchers to hypothesize that higher levels of this vitamin and lower incidence of cancer in people who live in southern locations could be correlated. Furthermore, experiments have indicated that there is a possible connection between vitamin D and the development of cancer. Vitamin D aids in the repair and regeneration of cells, which could decrease the growth of cancerous tumors, stimulate the death of cells that have been damaged by cancer, and lower the formation of blood vessels in tumors.
